Farming animals for products like meat, dairy, and leather have been common globally for over 9,000 years. While animal products have been incredibly positive for society over multiple generations, today they are proving more destructive than beneficial with the rise of factory farming. After thousands of years depending on animals for agriculture, humanity has finally attained the biotechnological means to supersede this necessity through a new practice called cellular agriculture. This concept of farming identical animal products from cells outside of an animal, without the need for raising a living animal, poses a much-needed solution to factory farming. Cell-ag has the potential to address problems of public health, the environment, and human/animal rights at a remarkable scale, positioning it in an unprecedented class truly capable of revolutionizing the world. Whether you approach this piece as a skeptic, supporter, or potential consumer, the following is a non-exhaustive list outlining 90 reasons to consider cellular agriculture.
